So Today we’re going to talk about Something that’s special it’s a civil War Cavalry carbine that was thought up By a fellow named Edward Linder and on March 29th 1859 uh Mr Linder got himself A patent and he got himself a patent for An interesting gun uh they Are a little different than any of the Others that you’ll encounter uh during The Civil War he got the bright idea That This this mechanism he said well we’re Going to make a lever that you lift up Uh move it 180 degrees over and when you Do that It’s going to release The back of the the barrel is going to Pop up like that ain’t that crazy uh and You’ve got to make that where it will Seal off enough to not explode on you

And it’s got to line up correctly and Mr Linder had a had a good idea but uh he Didn’t do a lot of them he did 892 of These in in a couple of uh contracts on This version it’s known as the type one They did two types the first one is 892 Of them it’s a lot tougher to find than The second type These guns are are interesting they’re Completely unmarked except for up on the Top of that piece itself and it’s marked Edward linder’s patent March 29 1859. And this one you can read it this one’s A really pretty one Um only 892 of them made and that’s not Many when you think of the Springfields That they made over a million of so it’s A tough to find a little gun where were They made I’m glad you asked they were Made in Manchester New Hampshire and They believed that they were all made at The amascag manufacturing company and we Don’t know that for sure but that’s what It’s believed as of now and that’s a Good thing about this those guys that do Research are amazing they find out new Stuff all the time and hopefully someday We will know for sure so it’s a cool gun They have a 20 inch barrel fire a 58 Caliber their percussion meaning that They use a percussion cap to spark the Powder inside the barrel this one’s Fully functional it closes Basically just the same way in reverse
